Totally! Once people reach a certain age, that thought must be the elephant in the room every time a birthday comes around.

Happy Birthday Mr. Mandela

Nah! Cant be arsed.
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

Obviously he will die on a significant anniversary connected to the death of a British Prime Minister?

I thought we had established that?

Or, he could die on the same day as a British PM, namely Thatcher.

This would be the only way for her to avoid getting undue and undeserved attention in death.

I'm going to make a bold and possibly foolish prediction now.I predict that Lady Thatcher and Nelson Mandela will both be gone by the end of t his year.Feel free to laugh at me if you want,but I'm sticking to it

Why don't you train to be a hitman could help speed things along then...or would that constitute cheating?

Now the first white friend of Nelson Mandela has died.How many more deaths of his close friends and colleagues can he bear in his condition?

If he managed to get over the death of his granddaughter last year, I'm pretty sure he can cope with deaths of elderly friends.

Given that he is 93, he is probably used to the idea of his comtemporaries dying...

That's what keeps some of them going, I reckon .... outlasting other people. :D

Agreed. Although none dare think they can outlast Dunn.
